buds swelling

each morning, at breakfast, i note the swelling of the buds on the maple tree just outside the window.
sugaring season is over, spring has truly arrived.
to all those in the mid-west, hang in there.

take me for a ride in your side car

 if the temperatures
ever warm up.

where despite the occasional patch of snow,
spring has flung her arms wide open to embrace us.

if such different species can peacefully share habitat,

Bronx Zoo--The Bears

 this youngster preferred to keep her face dry,
backing gingerly into the pool
 once in she used the warm rocks as a pillow.
later, after she'd climbed out, she pushed her sister into the pool
and chuckled at her own prank.
oh, the bears, the bears were "unbearably" cute.

Thursday, April 11, 2013

come with me to the bronx zoo on a sweet spring day.

let's wander up the walks, under the tunnels, over the bridges, 
and see what we might see.
